Updated with some better photos, minus one RS sticker :)

I've weight it with a handheld scale thing so not overly accurate but it says its about 29lbs. I was shooting for lower than that really but there are some heavier bits on there which may get swapped out once i shead a few lbs myself :p

Is your groupset made of lead with your bars and stem cast Iron? :lol:

Seriously though, looks fab now the stickers gone. :D

lol, well i mean i would really have like to have the 4.1 wheelset and carbon stem, bars and seatpost - full xtr would have been nice etc.... but i'm short on the cash at the moment so maybe next year i can give it an alround upgrade.

Its a far cry from the jumping frame hardtail i was using for XC before tho so it should be great for the XC stuff

Your groupset and components are fine :) XTR is for the megarich.

Apologies for being too cryptic but the point I was trying to make (and hopelessly failed at) was that either your scales are way, way out or you meant to put 29ibs! :lol:

Thought so. :lol:

I used to have a Heckler around 8-9 years ago and got the weight down to 28lbs with largely shimano XT stuff. Loved that bike - had to get rid to finance a family holiday. Shame!!! :cry:

All this talk of weight just made me pick up my bike on the Wii fit... My Heckler is 30ibs, fcuk i could loose some weight myself. Just given the bike a clean and its 28ibs now.

Love the superlight....

I got the bar and stem together cheap so i'm gonna use it for a while and see how it all feels. Might knock down for something a little shorter if i fit the feel doesn't fit. Doesn't feel strange tho, am 6 foot and the reach feels around right.

k2rider wrote:is it just me or is the seat at a funny angle

Yep, tis sorted now tho. I took the photos the second i got back from the bike shop as it the cleanest the bike is likely to be for the near future :p
